Programme Note:
Based on poetry by Persian poet Rumi. In the song of the reed, Rumi reflects on the human spirit through the metaphor of the ancient reed flute or Ney that is popular in middle-eastern music.

Farsi (Persian):
Beshno az ney chon hekaayat mikonad
Az jodaayee ha shekaayat mikonad
Kaz neyestaan ta maraa bebrideh and
Dar nafiram mardo zan naalideh and
Sineh khaaham sharheh sharheh az faraagh
Ta begooyam sharheh dardeh eshtiyaagh

English translation:
O’ listen to the grievances of the reed
Of what divisive separations breed
From the reedbed cut away just like a weed
My music people curse, warn and heed
Sliced to pieces my bosom and heart bleed
While I tell this tale of desire and need

Premiere Information:
February 9th, 2017, MacMillan Theatre, Toronto, Ontario
University of Toronto Saxophone Ensemble, Wallace Halladay conducting
